I found several of these gruesome looking and destructive critters on my cherry tomato plant. this guy is huge looks like its about blowup. Check out the final photo.

this one is a gonner, apparently there are parasitic wasps that will lay their eggs on these critters and live off these guys. too bad they didnt lay eggs on all of these things. Im keeping this large one in a jar to see what kind of moth it turns into.
